Classic lines, and poss a sister of Meltem Universal + Mistral Universal ex SA Hexrivier + SA Zebedela. Full of insulated hatch pontoons which fell apart with regular monotony.

A very nostalgic shot of a classic reefer shown alongside berth 104 Southampton Western Docks, this berth is where the current Southampton Fruit Terminal is situated so it stull has reefers alongside although not as good looking as this one!
